3. Your rights

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal e-mail making this request is sufficient.

Withdrawing consent may lead to fewer possibilities to use the services provided by the website (e.g. contribute to the grave transcriptions). The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Rights to access, rectification, erasure and restriction of processing

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You can contact us at any time using the address given herein if you have further questions on the topic of personal data. Website visitors have the right to have incorrect or incomplete personal data we have stored corrected or completed. Website visitors may also ask us to erase their personal data from our systems. We will comply with such a request unless we have a legitimate ground not to delete the data.

Right to object

Website visitors may object to the processing of personal data if such data is processed for purposes other than purposes necessary for the performance of the HIstoric Graves project. In case we do not have legitimate grounds to continue processing such personal data, we shall no longer process the personal data after your objection.

4. Data security


We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal data we collect and process. Measures include, for example, where appropriate, firewalls and access right systems. Our security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, availability, resilience and ability to restore the data.

Should, despite the security measures, a security breach occurs that is likely to have negative effects on the privacy of website visitors, we will inform the relevant website visitors and other affected parties, as well as relevant authorities, when required by applicable data protection laws, about the breach as soon as possible.

5. Personal data recipients


We do not share personal data with third parties outside of Eachtra, except for the use of third-party services for the management of the newsletter or for occasional surveys.
